If I say or do something stupid/offensive, please let me know instead of blocking or softblocking me.
Sometimes I'm just not aware of how problematic something I'm saying is, and if people just cut contact en masse I'm left wondering I did and will probably repeat the mistake.
I can't learn from mistakes I'm not aware of.
Seriously can people stop softblocking me out of nowhere and ignoring me without giving me any reason? I'm trying my best here.
I'm not even upset right now, don't have the energy. Just confused.
